lots of colour and detail, high resolution amazing photography plus huge amounts of writing from interviews, Crewdson's summaries of his own work and much more.
This book is jam packed with his startling, other worldy photos and information about him, his inspirations, how he creates a series and general information about his art and creative process. Perfect Birthday present for a photographer/artist who is interested in Gregory Crewdson.

Crewdson's photographs are beautiful, full of detail and wonder. The book is a tad pricey, but then what do you expect for such mastery of visual story-telling? The range of work is great, dating from his simpler early work to much more constructed scenes more recently. I love the level of ambiguity in his work, and how each 'scene' can be interpreted in so many ways. The book pages are large enough to really enjoy the photographs, although of course I'd always like larger!
